Let’s be honest, DC hasn’t given us much to look forward to since The Dark Knight. Their attempt at bringing The Justice League to the silver screen has been a major let down to most fans. Luckily, Warner Bros. took a leap of faith with their rated R comic book movie, and it paid off. Like, record breaking $1 Billion, paid off.

Now, a month later we hear rumblings of a sequel, and Twitter has lit up. Joker 2 is in development! Or… Is it?

Currently, there are no deals or negotiations with director Todd Phillips or his co-writer Scott Silver according to Deadline. So, there hasn’t been any actual moves towards the sequel, but after seeing how fast this went “Trending” on Twitter and Facebook, we’re sure someone will be making the call very soon.
